Happy Thankful Thursday! (We are going to make every Thursday Thankful Thursday!)
Doing the PROBAR Thankful contest has allowed me to reflect on what I am truly Thankful for every day. We have had a very trying few months, between the passing of my Father In Law to all of our appointments with Zachary. I’m so Thankful for my husband, I don’t know what I would do with out him. He has been so strong, and he is truly my hero. I’m also thankful for each and every one of you reading this right now. Without you all logging on everyday GGH would be nothing. This site has been my Godsend in so many ways. I have met amazing people from all over the world, discovered things about myself, and learned that I really can do whatever I put my mind to.
What are you thankful for? You could win some free tasty goodness for telling me ;).

After our appointments today, we ran a few quick errands to pick up supplies for the kitchen to be finished tomorrow. By the way, did you guys know that Home Depot has TONS of adorable Christmas decorations?! I was going bananas! I found so many Snow Man things, snow people are my Christmas decoration obsession, and they were reasonably priced. But, I was shopping with Mr. “we are her for tile grout and not snowmen” so I had to leave the cuties behind. But we did get the tile grout, and that’s a good thing because I’m ready for it to be done.
After Home Depot, we swung through my mecca (Target) for a few meaningless items and I was struck with the idea to make home made Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt!!!! It is chillin’ in the freezer as we speak and if it turns out I will definitely share the super easy recipe with you! If it doesn’t I’ll tweak it till it works.
Time for Turkey Talk!!!
Tonight we are gonna jazz up a typical but healthy side dish, Green Beans!
Steam-Sautéed Lemony Green Beans
2 pounds fresh green beans
2/3 cup water
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tb. finely grated lemon zest
Place beans in a 12-inch skillet. Mix water, salt and oil, and pour over beans. Cover skillet and turn burner on high. When beans start to sizzle and steam, set timer and cook until water evaporates and beans are tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in zest and serve.

Allright, friends, family, and newbies….I’m turning in for the night. Long day and I can’t keep my eyes open!
